Daily Edirne Tour
Two hours after setting off from Istanbul we arrive at second capital of Ottoman Empire.
Edirne is the city hosting cultural and architectural remains of a world empire. It draws attention especially on its well known Selimiye Mosque. Masterpiece of the Islamic architecture, work of mastership of Sinan and the signature of Islam on the way to Turkey. 450 years old dome of Selimiye is larger than Hagia Sophia. To reach Old Mosque which stands there for 600 years with its splendid calligraphic scripts we need to pass on Meric Bridge which is on the junction of Arda and Meric rivers. We conclude our tour in Beyazit Külliyesi (complex of Beyazit Mosque) to comprehend treatment methods of Ottoman for illnesses such as mental issues.After a two hour journey we say you goodbye in Istanbul.
